My favorite thing about my new town is the fact that I don’t have to go to Walmart if I don’t want to. BUT I will say we have a great Walmart here so its kind of a win-win. I don’t have to go, but if I do it isn’t too bad.
On Saturday Andy and I went to Walmart together because we had to get our oil changed. It went especially well and I couldn’t believe how great the kids did. The key is to get two buggies so they can’t touch each other. The other key to success is to let Andy do most of the grocery shopping with one child while I shop the beauty aisles with another. WINNING.
Then we went to the check out line. While waiting for Andy to meet me to check out, we had two different people talk to us.
The first one was a nice lady who leaned in close and said, “Hiiii sweet girl! You are just too cute!” Annnd apparently she spit when she talked because Ryder leans away from her and gives her THAT look and says, “Why you spit in my mouph?!” I COULD HAVE CRAWLED IN A HOLE AND DIED.
The second person was a little old lady. She had a walker and couldn’t have been less than 92 years old. I’m not joking at all on this. She stopped to talk and held her little hand out. Ryder says to her, “wait, I’m not a toucher.” The lady laughed. Then she told her, “I not talk to strangers.” After telling her it was okay since I was there she said, “So you a grandma stranger? Why you walking with that? You a old grandma today?”
The child has NO FILTER. None. Luckily old Grandma Stranger had a great sense of humor and thought she was cute.
After our Walmart trip we went bowling with the Dixon’s. We had the best time. I was a little worried because y’all know how Andy is when he’s bowling… but there were no issues. haha! Rory had me in tears from laughing because she was so prissy when bowling. I got video so you can see it. It was so hilarious. She would have bowled all night too. I couldn’t believe her stamina. Oh. Who am I kidding. Rory is the queen of stamina.
Also, Amber and Bill have the sweetest baby ever, Lucas, and my girls are madly in love with him. They cannot get enough. And now they pray every single night for a baby in their family. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO TO GET THEM TO STOP. hahaha
Yesterday I cleaned out our room and closet. I put up 7 loads of laundry I had avoided putting up all week last week. It felt so dang good to have a fully cleaned and organized room. I’m hoping to keep it that way. I love escaping to our bedroom during rest time and at night but it is hard to escape if we have it as the catch-all.
Then I watched the Golden Globes. I will say this: I have loved the GG for so long and it has become one of my favorite award shows because it is so much more casual and usually HILARIOUS. But this year I basically just felt “eh” about the whole thing. I think the joking about North Korea is getting old. Margaret Cho got on my nerves being on there so much. I just think Tina and Amy are funnier than that and that the whole thing was a miss on that part. I did LOVE George Clooney’s speech. I mean, Andy has never used “alchemy” when talking about me which I feel is a disgrace.
I will say I absolutely loved all of the silver dresses last night. Is it just me or are they totally inspired by the late 90s/early 2000s. Except much more chic and much less punk. My favorite in silver were Julianne Moore, Salma Hayek, Ellie Kemper, and Reese Witherspoon.
Here is the vlog I did over the weekend, enjoy! (Side note: I need to figure out how to be able to change the screen on the videos because this is not a pretty look.)
